Hey Nate, There are all the common accounts and biographies you can find on a google search....... but here is one I found at my local library, they were going to throw it out as it had not been checked out since 1996!
"Reminiscences of a Confederate Soldier" "Scott's Cavalry" "A True Story - Full of Interesting Events" by Byron Smith
It seems Byron joined Scott's Cav. (1st Ga., 1st La., 3rd Tenn.), and got himself captured and sent to Point Lookout Md. where he spent the rest of the war.
Shows some of the true horrors of being in a Prision Camp!

"Hardtack and Coffee" by John Billings (Fed); "Southern Service on Land and Sea" by Robert Watkins (CS army and navy); "Company Ayth" by Sam Watkins (CS). These are just some classic starters
